On today’s DiabetesPowerShow, Charlie Cherry, Chris Daniel, and Lori Cherry welcome Doris Hobbs.
Doris Hobbs has a passion for the fashion from a very glamorous time in our history. She loves all things 1940’s and 50’s, especially the new Christian Dior styles from 1947. She brings back this glamour on her website, RichInLoveFashion.com capturing stunning images from the golden age of Hollywood. Doris is thriving with Type One Diabetes.
At age 33, the first thing Doris realized after been diagnosed as a Type One Diabetic, was that she had two options: She could allow it to control her life, or find the unbinding courage from within the tragedy; She chose courage.
The next few days were consumed with perplexed emotions, mostly of denial, pooled from the self-belief that she could be a rare case and mysteriously cured. She was given a new role and lifestyle as a Type One Diabetic. She immediately chose to not wear it as a sympathy garment; instead, she would rather re-fashion how others perceive such a life-altering disorder. Aside from a select group of family and friends that knew of her health struggles, she somehow managed, two days after the news was confirmed, to conduct an on-location photo-shoot for her website, Rich in Love Fashion. She knew, without a doubt, at that moment, she had a purpose on earth, and found herself more determined to not allow Diabetes to hinder her little girl dreams.
We, as a society, have a tendency of suppressing our fears, as mastering those can be difficult, and takes large amounts of will and courage to look in the mirror and say, “I will succeed; I can do this!” The relationship between one’s journey of self-growth and courage tends to evoke feelings of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty, but allowing such emotions to take center stage is moral injustice. At birth, each and every one of us is embedded with a purpose or talent, which provides us the blueprints of our life’s story, which must be written and shared.
“From all of my lessons and blessings in the last 2 1/2 years, I’ve formed an organic sense of how to live an authentic life that channels pure gratitude and glamour”.
Since being diagnosed a Type One Diabetic, Doris has provided media exposure for organizations such as: Beyond Type 1, JDRF, American Diabetes Association, Diabetes Alive, and has been featured on 101.7 KKIQ, 92.1 KKDV, Diabetes Connections, and Diabetes Late Nite for her advocate efforts.

On today’s DiabetesPowerShow, Charlie Cherry, Chris Daniel, and Lori Cherry talk about alternate site testing. How can we lessen or eliminate the pain associated with finger sticks? To help us with that question, we welcome Dr. Christopher Jacobs, the CEO and Chief Research Engineer for Genteel. He promises that the Genteel Lancing Device will challenge everything you’ve come to believe about a lancing device.
During the show, Charlie, for the first time, successfully accomplished alternate site testing, using the Genteel device. The camera clicked, as he learned that this new lancing device allows you to poke your skin once, and return to the same spot throughout the day, and draw blood without actually piercing your skin again. The unit creates a vacuum, so you can flip the lancet in the device (the sharp part) away from the skin, and do multiple blood draws from just one poke. He successfully drew blood 4 times during the show, but only stuck himself once...Charlie is now a fan of the Genteel.
Dr. Christopher Jacobs is the Chief Research Engineer in the development of Genteel, and holder of 75 United States and international patents; new medical devices and instrumentation through Oregon Graduate Institute (OGI) and Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). Biomedical engineer, designed and assisted in patenting world’s first variable rate cardiac pacemaker; Advanced Medical Technology (AMTEK), 1969, patented. Developed Control Systems for Artificial Kidneys (Renal Clearance); University of Southern California, 1964-1965.

#163 ALL GROW'D UP!
He First Joined us on the Show as a T1D Child...
He Returns as a Full Grown Man!
On today’s DiabetesPowerShow, Charlie Cherry, Chris Daniel, and Lori Cherry chatted with an old friend of the show. Mike Falk first appeared many years ago as a child, on an episode that we dedicated to children with Type One Diabetes. He was among 4 other kids ranging in age from 8 to 17. Mike was 10 at the time, and now he joins us again as an adult.
Mike brought along a friend, Reed Gialketsis, who also has Type One Diabetes. She and Mike have known each other from “back in the day”, when they were both young ambassadors for the JDRF community.
Also joining us in studio is Lori’s Brother, Gary, and his Wife, Ros. They do not have Diabetes, but they were a great addition to today’s show, asking questions that will help and inform people who are newly diagnosed with Diabetes.

#160 Hypoglycemia…To Tell or Not To Tell
On today’s DiabetesPowerShow, we talk about sharing the “Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” as it pertains to Hypoglycemia events in your life. We know it is very important that we, as people with Diabetes, speak openly with our Diabetes Care Team about our highs and lows. But what about other people in our lives? Should we tell our friends and co-workers? Today we talk about how sharing could possibly save your life.

On today's DiabetesPowerShow, Charlie Cherry, Chris Moore, Theresa Moore, Chris Daniel, and our official behind-the-scenes announcer, Lori Cherry, celebrate ten years…that's right…a full decade of Diabetes podcasting. In celebration of this milestone, we indulge ourselves, as we reminisce about the amazing adventure this show has been for us. We have met so many incredible people from all around the world in the Diabetes community. We have traveled from coast to coast, attending Diabetes events as ambassadors for not only DiabetesPowerShow, but for the Diabetes community at large.
On August 28, 2006, DiabetesPowerShow was born. When we started, we were not 100% sure there would be a show number 2, or that we would be around the following month. Here we are, August 28, 2016, and we are going stronger than ever!
Very few podcasts that involve 2 or more co-hosts survive more than a few episodes. We started in the very beginning of the new technology called ‘podcasting’. Out of the first wave of thousands of podcasts, created at that time, covering a variety of topics, (now there are millions) there are just a handful of remaining ‘original' podcasters. We proudly count ourselves among that small group of people. The five of us have developed a bond and friendship that is unbreakable. After 10 years, whether the microphones are turned on or off, we can almost read each other’s minds, and finish each other’s sentences. DiabetesPowerShow is the longest consistently-running Diabetes related podcast in the world. We are committed to taking this show into the future, as we all work towards a cure for this thing called Diabetes.
